Jordan Executes 2 Islamists After ISIS Releases Video Of Pilot Burned To Death

Barbarism demands a response

(UK Daily Mail) Jordan has executed two ISIS-linked prisoners, including a would-be female suicide bomber, it has been revealed this morning.

The executions, at about 4am local time today, came just hours after Islamic State militants released a sickening video showing a captured Jordanian fighter pilot being burned alive in a cage.

Jordan had vowed a swift and lethal response and government officials this morning revealed that two prisoners, Sajida al-Rishawi and Ziad al-Karbouli, have already been hanged.

Al-Rishawi had been on death row for her role in a triple hotel bombing in the Jordanian capital Amman in 2005 that killed dozens.

The executions took place after gruesome footage emerged showing Jordanian pilot Moaz al-Kasasbeh being torched to death by his captors.

The latest murder by Islamic State terrorists represents a new level of barbarity from a group notorious for its savagery.

As with previous beheading videos, footage of Moaz al-Kasasbeh’s murder is characterised by its slick production values and graphics.

But unlike the others, it contains an added cinematic dimension clearly designed to achieve heightened impact – as if the horror of burning alive wasn’t enough.

ISIS blames the fighter pilot for burning houses and killing babies with airstrikes before he was captured in December.

The manner of his death is a symbolic show of strength to strike terror into ‘non-believers’ and encourage doubters within their ranks.

The pictures are brutal, and I personally want nothing to do with watching the video. I’d recommend that those who utterly refuse to condemn the hardcore version of Islam that ISIS practices to take a gander, though. But, then, nothing else has seemed to change the minds of these Leftists. Not how the extremist view of Islam treats women. Not how they treat gays. Not how they stop free speech. Nothing.

Anyhow, of course there are those who complain that executing jihadist prisoners will bring more atrocities from ISIS. Newsflash: Islamists will carry out atrocities and attacks regardless.

Even Piers Morgan gets it: PIERS MORGAN: Watching ISIS burn a man alive was the most abominable thing I have ever seen – and any Muslim who won’t stand up to these barbarians must watch it too

What will it take to wake Leftists up? Interestingly, they’re more than willing to blame the entire Christian religion for the actions of a few, even though said actions are rarely done in the name of God. Yet, they seem to take the opinion that any condemnation of hardcore Islam, practiced in the name of Allah and Mohammed, is an unacceptable condemnation of all of Islam. No, it isn’t. What will it take to convince Leftists?
